Alexis Sanchez’s transfer to from Barcelona to Arsenal looks a done deal after he has reportedly accepted the club’s offer of a five-year contract worth around £150,000-a-week.
It will be a stunning deal for Arsene Wenger if he signs the Chilean, who was told he can leave the Nou Camp earlier this summer.
Arsenal have successfully fended off interest from Liverpool, Juventus and AC Milan and now expect to complete the signing of the 25-year-old this week, with personal terms now apparently agreed.
Arsenal are reportedly also closing in on a deal for QPR striker Loic Remy.
The French international, returning from the World Cup, spent last season on loan with Newcastle, being a huge figurehead in their starting lineup.
The 27-year-old bagged 14 Premier League goals last year and would be a much needed presence in Arsenal’s somewhat diluted strikeforce.
A deal between QPR and the Gunners is said to be nearing completion, with the Frenchman set to agree personal terms.
